*Unfortunately most sales people always fall into temptation if they are handling cash,that is why The Netherlands is almost running a cashless society..If you dont have a credit card you cannot go shopping there....

Last time i was in Rotterdam,I couldnt even buy a bottle of water at the train station with cash..So frustrating!

10:39....i think you are right

Haba.. How can only a junior staff.. Sales girl steal all that amount of money?

Meaning, there is no proper Segregation of duties..... The sales girl should have who she report to after duty

Is it that, they don't balance their account after every day's work?

Is it that, there is not Inventory taking?


I don't get mbok

This story is all faces of misconstrued. 500m? Let me ask. How often do the staff switch? I doubt one person works the full work hours all week all day. When they switch,don't they tender accounts? Okay,500m. How did she get hold of such money? Cash? Where she dey harbor the cash for a month? She put am for toto ni? Her Toto na bottomless pit? For sure,ATM payments can never get to her. They should tell true true if na money or commodities wey she tif. Abi if na 553k wey dem do mistake add plenty zeros.

Sales girls...hmmm....most of them are not to be trusted. Put them in a shop, and they will try all their best possible to run you down. Heartless bunch of people.

Anon 10:39 is very correct.
She did not do this alone.
Some people assisted her.

I have seen it happen before.

jelly said...

She can't be the only thief of this money

Cisca Chesca said...

Babe its 'steal'.
I know it's a mistake tho.

She no plan am well, see money Chai.

SDK don't make excuses for her, a thief is a thief. Is she the only one handling cash there? She's criminally minded & she ought to pay the price for her crime

Anonymous said...

Total rubbish. N500m? One sales staff? The whole shop does not make N500m in a month. This story lacks credibility

DestinaMarie said...

It's possible that the total money that did not reconcile was 500M, as it was revealed by audit. But I think that the girl is being made a scape goat for ALL the total sum of monies missing. It's possible the sum is even higher, because those Shopright staff never give me my complete change if I pay by cash.

Omolewa said...

I think so too

Omolewa said...

That's why I can buy something for 100 naira and I will use my card to pay for it
